Staff Reviews


This book blew my mind. After the first section ended very suddenly, I struggled where the book was going to go. It is like a huge literary puzzle. A connect-the-dots in word form. The time and space of the book span generations and never gets boring. I thought it to be a wonderful thrill ride. I still thank my friend for recommending it to me. -Shane's Pick 

Fall '12 Reading Group List


“This is perhaps the most ambitious, complex, and brilliant novel I have ever read. Mitchell takes six completely different storylines, written in six distinct genre styles -- from pulp mystery novel to pidgin English-laden sci-fi -- set in six completely different time periods ranging from the 1800s South Pacific to far into a post-apocalyptic future, and chops them up and blends them to form one seamless, intricate, awe-inspiring saga of humanity. When your copy seemingly ends mid-sentence on page 39, please trust me and keep reading!”
